I got the PN64F8500 delivered last weekend. My retailer only had the floor model left, & I made sure it there was no burn-in. Got a great deal too. He said it was on display since Jan 2014, & guessed it had around 1500 hours of use. TV was made in March 2013 according to the sticker on back of TV.
I wanted to see how many hours of use it really had. Since I'm in Canada it only came with the small Smart TV remote. I tried inputting the Mute 7-3-7-ENTER code to look at the MRT value, with a old RCA universal remote & my Yamaha receiver remote. I can't seem to get the code to work. Looks like the TV was updated in the store cause it has the latest firmware of 1120 on it.
Any ideas? Thanks.
